Taking Flight to a New Location

We are pleased to announce that the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada is moving to a stunning new location. Effective October 24, 2018, the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada will no longer be operating at the Ferry Road facility as we begin this exciting transition.

The new museum will be located on the Winnipeg Airports Authority’s campus on Wellington Avenue and within minutes of the James Armstrong Richardson International Airport. It will be a premier architectural attraction as visitors arrive to the city or residents return home or pick up arriving family and friends. The museum is scheduled to open in 2021.

The new Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada will contain both a foundation of history and a new mix of engaging and educational spaces that interpret the future of aviation and aerospace.

We’d like to thank our visitors and all our stakeholders for their support and belief in our organization. This is a unique and transformational time in the museum’s history.

Development of our new location continues to soar!

This project would not be possible without the generosity of many funding partners including $10 million from the Government of Canada, and $10 million from the Province of Manitoba as well $17.5 million from the private sector.
